Now VH1 has put out an official announcement regarding the series, which will air its premiere episode featuring Geddy Lee on Saturday, February 21st at 10PM:

From Banger Films, the people that brought you the Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage documentary and the TV show Metal Evolutions, comes an all-new docu-series profiling the biggest icons in hard rock, heavy metal and classic rock. Rock Icons premieres Saturday February 21st at 10/9C, immediately following the That Metal Show's season 14 kick-off, and takes you backstage with in-depth, intimate portraits revealing who these rock stars really are.
